Plastic Materials Expert Witness


A prominent lawyer needed a plastic materials expert to help with nationwide class action lawsuits regarding implanted polypropylene mesh made from Marlex® HGX-030-01. He wanted a Marlex mesh expert who could help him understand the technical aspects of the case and help present the information clearly to the judge and jury.


I was recommended as someone with deep experience and the ability to explain technical concepts in layperson’s terms. I was then engaged under retainer to dig into the details of the case and establish the facts. I immediately began reading all the documents provided and finding scientific publications to shed light on the topic. By identifying and reading hundreds of articles, I was able to determine with a high degree of certainty that the science strongly supported the plaintiff’s case.


I wrote several Marlex® mesh expert reports and was deposed in regard to the case. I was not only able to establish the cause of the problems but also to refute the arguments of the defendant’s experts. We showed that they used incorrect methods, cited inapplicable articles and contradicted themselves. By explaining the facts simply, and using analogies, we were able to convey the message in a more effective manner and achieved a positive outcome helping thousands of people to get settlements. This led to appearances on CBS 60 Minutes with Scott Pelley, the BBC and Sky News. Later expert witness class-action work on CERCLA landfill and medical implants followed.

If you have mesh implanted and need help then please contact the relevant medical and legal professionals. My role is to support lawyers in class-action lawsuits. There is nothing I can do to help individuals because I am neither a medical doctor nor a lawyer, so please, no phone calls.

Marlex® is a tradename of Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC
